Tom Hirons and Rima Staines

Storyteller and writer Tom Hirons (Sometimes a Wild God, Nettle-Eater) and internationally-respected artist, musician and puppeteer Rima Staines are Hedgespoken, a travelling off-grid storytelling theatre run from a 1966 Bedford RL lorry, converted to be a home and a go-anywhere stage. Tom and Rima live in the Hedgespoken wagon with their young son and travel the highroads and byroads of England and beyond, telling tales and sparking imaginations wherever they can, from busy festivals to quiet lay-bys and secluded forests. With a devoted and ever-growing following, Hedgespoken specialise in retelling traditional British and European folktales and stories from the wide world of the various communities of travelling folk. Tom and Rima also run Hedgespoken Press, a fledgling small press producing art-prints and pocket-sized books of wonder and fascination
